behind such a wide swath of destruction how will the devastation effect the already fragile u.s. housing market? >> brian: let's ask ceo of sharpen institute. alex, what short-term for the housing market that many people believe was on its way back? >> the housing market has been on its way back. we have three things that are going to change in the short-term. one of the things affected in the northeast is of course there is just not enough houses. we have a 50 year low of inventory right now. so where we were seeing a recovery, we're now going to see some struggle just due to the incredible damage. this is the second costliest hurricane in the history of the united states. so, when you look at the numbers, $50 billion in damage, it's going to take a while for the northeast to recover. overall, however, the housing market in the u.s. is strong due to investors and banks finally moving through distressed inventory. short-term we will see an effect. long term this shouldn't effect the entire housing market. >> steve: short-term you are talking about the next three to six months. all right.
